How old were you when you got your first bike: I think I was 9 or 10 but it was a 1970 Honda trail 90 that I ended up riding straight into the back of the car thus breaking the tail light. So I didn't get a early or great start to say the least but I got started as soon as I could!
What has been your biggest accomplishment in racing: Finishing 4th OA in the National Western Harescramble series. It was pretty cool to get the official letter and certificate being a local kid racing some nationals against some really fast people!
What has been your biggest challenge in racing: Probably eating before the race. I generally am not a breakfast person and getting those pre-race nerves/excitement don't help so forcing myself to eat before the race so I don't bonk halfway through is my biggest hurdle.
Do you have a training routine: Just riding the dirt bike as much as possible and going for road/mountain bike rides when I don't ride the motorcycle. I think cardio is a huge role and people don't do it enough.
What are your future plans: To keep riding and racing my dirt bike! I hope to really get everyone in the Grand Valley back into racing because it's always a great time at the races or just riding in general with your friends.
Is there anyone you'd like to thank for your accomplishments: Oh way to many to name but I hope to make them proud.
Other hobbies: I really don't have any other then dirt bikes! I live, eat, sleep, and breathe dirt bikes! Don't believe me just ask around! Haha!
Favorite place to ride: The Grand Junction desert of course!
Favorite riders: Kurt Caselli, Toby Price, James Stewart, Eli Tomac, and Ryan Dungey
If you could be pro at any other sport what would it be: I would wanna race Trophy Trucks in Baja or maybe those Red Bull airplane racing would be sweet too!
